HIHON - JAPAN and FATHERLAND

MOTHERLAND/FATHERLAND

I was born in 1960 in Far East Asia, Japan. We call Japan "Nihon". The word of "Ni" means the Sun. The word of "Hon" means center. So, the Japanese national flag is the Red Sun. We are living in Far East Asia but our old mothers and fathers believed that they were living at the center of the world. Japan is an island, so, we are very familiar with the sea. I like both the Sea and Mountain. Japan has both of them. I like Japanese nature.
